Game of Thrones meets the Grimm's fairy tales in this twisted, fast-paced romantic fantasy-adventure about Sleeping Beauty's daughter, a warrior princess who must fight to reclaim her throne.Sleeping Beauty is my favorite princess, so I'm super intrigued to read this one. Plus I've been digging the fantasy's lately.
Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy yet cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne ten years ago.
Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise forever keep them from finding their one true love?
I must note that I'm super excited for Jen's pic as well. I cannot freaking wait to get my hands on both of these titles. :)

Mysterious. Magnificent. Creepy. Welcome to Rockford Manor.
"There's something hidden in the Maze." Seventeen-year-old Imogen has never forgotten the last words her father said to her seven years ago, before the blazing fire that consumed him, her mother, and the gardens of her family's English country manor.
Haunted by her parents' deaths, Imogen moves to New York City with her new guardians. But when a letter arrives with the news of her cousin's untimely death, revealing that Imogen is now the only heir left to run the estate, she returns to England and warily accepts her role as duchess.
All is not as it seems at Rockford, and Imogen quickly learns that dark secrets lurk behind the mansion's aristocratic exterior, hinting that the spate of deaths in her family were no accident. And at the center of the mystery is Imogen herself--and Sebastian, the childhood friend she has secretly loved for years. Just what has Imogen walked into?
Combining a fresh twist on the classic REBECCA with a spine-tingling mystery and powerful romance, SUSPICION is an action-packed thrill ride.
I can't help envisioning Labyrinth whenever I see the word maze. That movie was my childhood. And this book sounds just as stunning and dark and mysterious as that movie was to me as a kid. (Now, I'm doing good if I can focus on something other than that bulge while watching, lol.) Anyway, I've never actually read Rebecca. I bought a copy in high school for some paper or other and then changed my mind and picked an Austen book instead, and now I don't know where my copy of Rebecca is. So, I won't really have anything to compare this "twist" to, but all the same, I'm excited for it. Like Jarreth, I'll be not-so-patiently waiting for December so I can get to the creepy mystery of Rockford Manor.
